The MEA is again soliciting proposals to present at the 2019 Summer Leadership Conference. You are invited to submit your proposal.
The conference will be held in the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, July 30 through August 1.
We’re asking that all session proposals focus on member engagement, organizing and the role leaders will play in making that happen. If you or someone you know would like to present at this year’s conference, please complete an RFP. Because of the budget constraints of this conference, please be aware of the following reimbursement policy for presenters at SLC:
- MEA Board Member attending as their Board Paid Conference, their expenses will be reimbursed according to that policy.
- Local President attending is reimbursed based on that policy which we will be available in the announcement.
- MEA members (including an MEA Board Member that has already attended their Board Paid Conference) are eligible for their mileage only to be reimbursed – no meals other than conference meals. One overnight will be reimbursed if they live more than 125 miles from the venue, their session starts before 11:00 a.m., or they are presenting on multiple days. They will be able to attend the conference without paying a registration fee.
- If not an MEA member, there are no reimbursements for expenses to present at the conference. They will be able to attend the conference without paying a registration fee and/or take part in the conference meals/activities.
Please use the attached Request for Proposal and review the information requested. Session proposals for the 2019 Summer Leadership Conference are due by Friday, March 15, 2019. Proposals can be emailed to Conferences@mea.org.
If you have questions, please call Carolyn Cortright at 517/337-5491 or 1/800/292-1934, extension 5491.
